  1. Want to optimize my airflow, looking for tips - Case is Define R6, available fans are 3 Noctua NF-A12x25PWM on H150i CLC and 4 Noctua NF-A14s (140mm) - what would be the ideal fan placement?

  2. Yesterday I did a fresh install of Windows 10, installed all my programs, did the whole file association thing (like open .mkv in VLC etc.) and ever since then I have been getting notifications that “An app caused a problem and the file association for .xxx has been set to default”. Anyone have an idea why this is happening? Never happened before. And before anyone asks, yes, mi Win10 is genuine.

      Had it once but reinstalling the Program fixed it for me.

  3. Is it enough for airflow to have 3 intakes in front (Noctua NF-A12x25PWM) and one rear exhaust (Corsair LL140)?? Case is Define R6

      A friend of mine told me to also put something on the top of the case, just so it is not empty :D but that would create negative pressure and I dont want that

      I guess you’d have to test if the one exhaust and positive pressure can exhaust the hot air enough

      I have three slowed down AF120 on front and one fan that exhaust through rad on the back and no problems so far. :)

    Yeah, already thinking about replacing them. Thanks for the help

    Fan configuration - Define R6

    Hello, everyone looking for tips on how to properly set up fans in my Define R6. Currently, I have it like this - 360mm AiO at front as intake, 2x140mm on top as exhaust, 1x140mm rear exhaust. I think, that because I have bigger fans as exhausts than intakes, I have negative pressure (I notice dust build-up over short periods of time) Would it be wise to do it like this? - 3x120mm in front as intake and move the AiO on top as exhaust, and leave the rear empty, thus creating balanced pressure? I want to try the AiO at the top, because I am seeing higher than usual temps on my delidded 8700K (5,0Ghz@1,35V) - under load 83C Thank you for all your ideas/suggestions Have a great day!

    Idling they sit at roughly 700RPM, once the CPU hits 70C or more, they spin at max, which is 1500RPM and the fan curve is set on the CPU package temp - all set and done via Corsair Commander and iCUE

    Fan configuration - Define R6

    It was a Realbench stress test. I know 83C is not that alarming, but it is cooled by a 360mm AiO... I have seen people achieve lower temps (75C) while on air or 240mm AiOs at same OC. And I wasnt attempting a higher OC, I bought this CPU from a local retailer, similar to Silicon lottery, that guaranteed a stable 5.0Ghz, so I am not pushing past that.

    What fans would you recommend for the front intake? And I am not concerned with GPU temps, interestingly they only get up to 62C while benchmarking and that is while mounted vertically.

    All my fans are Corsair LL series.

    Sadly, the R6 cant fit 3x140mm at the front

  12. Anyone interested in 10TB WD Reds? I have four of them - CDI-> https://imgur.com/a/iPxKC

    Price is 250USD each. Dont have heatware, but I have 32 confirmed trades on Reddit.

      Heatware is required on this site. Sorry :( 

       

      Definitely recommend throwing this in the Hot Deals section

      Some PCIe riser magic ? :D

      Let me know where you get your PCIE riser from. Need to find a good one.

    3. 1Scotty1

      1Scotty1

      Yep, Cooler Master Vertical GPU bracket and a riser from Lian-Li... @beach_boy98 - stay away from ThermalFake, those suck... some good ones are Lian-Li or 3M (but a bit pricey), the Lian one was 60€

  21. Good to be back here! Did I miss anything? :)

      @1Scotty1 Yep, but I do play around with the idea of having some color on cable extensions in the future. :)

  22. Hey, all. Received my 750D and started building in it a few days ago and I have come to a halt, because I can't figure out which screws to use, if I want to mount a 360 radiator to the top of the case? The ones that came with the case ( the short fan screws) are very short and fall through the grommeted top screw holes... so any help would be appreciated

    Mounting a 360 radiator in a 750D

    But that is the thing, no other screw, that came wih the case fits. That is the point of this thread, if anyone, that has this case could tell me what screws they used

    Mounting a 360 radiator in a 750D

    Funny, I mounted a 240 on the bottom of the case using them and no issues. But on the bottom it is just a small hole with no rubber grommet around it. But the top is different and no screws fit
